Tattoos-day edition 5 – Dotwork…

This week on Tattoos-day we are looking at Dotwork. Dotwork tattoos are one of the most intricate styles.  Complicated geometric images are created with nothing but dots. The tattoo artist must be very patient and very talented because he has to place every dot in the right place. Many dotwork artists have also abandoned the tattoo machine and are performing handpoked tattoos. Dotwork tattoos are a style on their own, and the shading you get through dots is almost 3D. You can’t get that kind of shading with any other method. The dotwork technique is used especially for geometric tattoos, religious and spiritual tattoos.

 

Here are a few that i love at the minute.

Tattoo-sday …. First ever post

Tattoo-sday.

First ever Tattoo-sday…

Tuesdays, or Tattoo-sday ‘s, are the days for looking at amazing tattoos! I love tattoos, the art everything about them, so instead of just looking at all of the tattoo images on the inter webs, i decided i should put it all to good use.

So, having said that, I would like to introduce you to a little regular feature here called Tattoo-sday (did you see what i did there) My plan is to post one every Tuesday, and basically just show you a few of the tattoos I have been drooling over.

 

The Ink….

These images are ones that i found online and i will try wherever possible to link back and credit the artists. Enjoy!

Beautiful!I want to believe

She's pretty scary. Dedication! I love this quote.

Well thats that then, i hope you liked my choices! i love all of these, the rex on the side of the head is awesome.

If you have any that you love i would love to see them, link them in the comments.

Till next time, Big love,

A Few of my Favourite things….

A Few of my favourite things

Friday…

So it’s that time of the week again. Time to settle down with a cuppa and look at some eye and brain candy!

This week I was focusing on artist of all types, and thinking about the different approaches individuals have. The world is full of creative people, and the people I am  including today, are so inspiring and I love their work. I would love for you to check them out further.

So take some time out for yourself, sit back and look at these beautiful works.

O.k so it isn’t “art” like you normally expect, but it is very artistic. Being able to make beautiful cakes and confectionary is a skill in its own right, and i admire anyone who can bake and decorate sweets as beautiful as these. The Juniper cakery is run by two lovely ladies, called Felicity and Krystle. They bake and supply cakes, cupcakes and confectionary, for Hull and the surrounding area. I literally could look (and eat) all of the things that they create. Artists in their own right.

Take a look….

How Beautiful are they? They don’t just do cakes they do sweets, cupcakes,macarons,cookies, and they are all beautiful. Kudos ladies!

You can find them in all the usual places and their website will be up and running soon. In the meantime click on the link to go their instagram.

Succulents. Who doesn’t love a succulent. Personally, I have a little bit of an obsession with them. So naturally when I stumbled across Arozona on Instagram, I had to indulge myself and found their art stunning, to say the least.

This is an art form close to my heart.

Tattooing is something that i have loved ever since i can remember. I have a fair few myself, and have a few friends in the trade itself. My instagram feed is full tattoo artists and this is one lady who just stands out. Her designs are cute, colourful, quirky and fun. Needless to say she had to be on this list today. I could browse her feed all day.

Dee loves to use inspiration from Japanese anime to 90’s nostalgic cartoons and is also active in the cosplay community.

So there we have it. I just want to say a big thank you to these lovely people for letting me feature them and use their images on my blog.

They have all left me feeling inspired. I am in awe of their originality and creativity. I wish I was as talented.:)

What art are you in to? what inspires you to create?

Big Love,
